Moana Makers Wiki

Bought to you by Basement Theatre, ‘Moana Makers Wiki’ is a precious offering for Māori, Pasifika & MVPFAFF+ communities to share space with Māori & Pasifika craft makers, performers and activators for a week of intimate workshops that platforms Indigenous knowledge sharing and creation, community building and unapologetic self-expression. Manifested with intentions of fostering more creative havens for Māori & Pasifika artists and our wider communities, this is a week that we warmly welcome you all to join. Supported by the Waitematā Local Board.

Te Ara Minhinnick (Ngaati Te Ata) (she/her) @te__ara

Hailing from Waiuku between the Waikato & Manukau waters, Te Ara employs Indigenous methods of practice through concepts pertaining to her Iwi, Ngaati Te Ata. Growing up under the framework of ‘akona mā te wai’, ‘learning through the medium of water’, Te Ara hopes to apply the observations taught by the Taiao to her artmaking focusing on placemaking through the wayfinding hua-vessels of whenua, one and wai.

Ko Taupiri, ko Puketapu ngā pito.

Ko Tahuna Kaitoto te puna kōpu.

Ko Te Manukanuka o Hoturoa, ko Te Awa o Waikato ngā wai ora.

Ko Ngaati Te Ata te iwi.
